Popular film star and UNICEF Celebrity Advocate, Trisha, called for innovative solutions for ending all forms of violence against children. She virtually met and congratulated the adolescents and young people who are champions in stopping early marriage and ending violence against children by raising awareness in the community.
A year back in August 2019, Trisha, had met these children and urged them to speak up to end violence against children, including ending child marriage and break the age-old culture of silence.
“I am thrilled to meet the young champions who raised awareness in their community on the dangers and long – term impact of child marriage. They worked with their peers to create a safety net to protect children from getting physically and sexually abused. These are trying times due to COVID- 19, but it has not affected the children,” said Trisha.
